So after four days of gyming, green juice, and that lovely kale salad above… I can say that I am finally ready to “carpe bellaria” which, according to the internet, is Latin for SEIZE THE DESSERT. Ya know, like “carpe diem” but with dessert instead… not as in, “Guards! Seize that dessert!”
Ya know what, nevermind… Let’s just pretend that never happened.
Point is, I want these in my life.
Those are brownies, people. Stuffed with Reeses eggs and marshmallow. Amazing, right?
And I saw this jacket yesterday and immediately needed to find a small child to put it on.
How freaking amazingly adorable is that!? Naturally, I had to see if they had an owl one too. Good news: They do!
Bad news: It doesn’t come in grown-up sizes 🙁
Also stumbled across this article on how to disinfect your kitchen sponges and the good news is that I’ve been doing a stellar job of disinfecting them! I had no clue if microwaving or dishwashing my sponges actually disinfected them, but it turns out that both techniques get rid of 99.99999% of the bacteria!
Oh, and while we’re here can we discuss a pet peeve of mine? This picture (borrowed from a Facebook friend) pretty much sums it up
Macarons are magical French cookies made from ground almonds, macarOOns are… well, filled with coconut… so I’ve never eaten one (true story).
Now that I’m older, wiser, and more adventurous I could possibly give one a try, but you cannot call them the same thing. They are totally different. If you have never had the french macaron, I suggest you google your closest bakery that may have them and head there immediately.
They’re that good.
In other news, I’ve got a really tasty cake in mind for you guys this weekend, coming up on Sunday morning (which will give me enough time to make it on Saturday, and give you enough time to make it Sunday afternoon). 🙂
